African Wine Dinner with Detroit's Baobab Fare and Frame's Sean Crenny
However you look at it, Nadia Nijimbere and Hamissi Mamba love to feed people.
The Burundian refugees who fled political violence just a few short years ago have made quite the name for themselves in their adopted city of Detroit. So much so that their light-filled New Center dining room at Baobab Fare has garnered the attention of Esquire Magazine, as one the Best New Restaurants in America as well as a spot on the just-announced 2023 James Beard Awards semifinalists list as “Best Chefs” in the Great Lakes region.
Next up: an African wine dinner with Frame’s wine director Sean Crenny, creating a symbiotic experience with Nadia and Mamba’s underrepresented East African classics.
Meet new friends. Dine with incredible chefs. Enrich your spirit with the most gracious hosts.
It’s evenings like this at the Frame table where creativity and collaboration with people who share our values quite simply make us fall in love over and over with our incredible community.
Plus: soulful music and smoky cocktails by Mixtress Jaz’min Weaver.
. Welcome to the party — the kind of celebration that East African cuisine deserves.
